Mayra Petrona Velasquez Investment | Kiva Microloans | Team STW

We invested in a person called Mayra Petrona Velasquez who has a tortillas making business. Her store is located in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. She requested $500.

She is using this money to upgrade her business and to buy more stuff, like firewood, corn flour, water, matches, and other materials to make tortillas.

Our team chose her because we like tortillas. We also chose her because she needs alot of money, and also because food is important to be (or stay) alive, especially water.

  2. I found that Kiva is a important web site because it saves lives in the 3rd world. Me and 3 friends went on this site and gave some money for a loan to 17 people. They wanted to buy and sell animals. They wanted money to buy more animals to sell.
